A man goes hiking through the woods in a low-population area of Pennsylvania, and then he comes across this door near a lake. Suspended between a pair of trees, the door faces almost perfectly east and west, and there are small holes cut near the upper corners. One thinks, if it were to open, you would just see what is on the other side of the door. Or would you?
We can’t be certain that’s exactly what we would see…but we can’t think of many good sights that we’d get if we opened this up. It seems that almost anything set up in the woods, like this door, will make us think of scary stories, but this one is likely there for just that purpose. There’s nothing like something spooky in the woods to make you enjoy civilization a little more.
There Are a Lot of Bones
Most of the animals alive today have bones or a skeleton of some kind, which means, of course, that those bones are going to be found somewhere in the world – they take a little longer than normal skin and muscles to break down, and there aren’t many animals that can or will eat them. Of course, most of the time, they aren’t laid out in a worrying pattern like in this picture.
Bones like femurs are laid out in a frame, while the hips, ribs, and skull pieces are arranged in the center, and you know what? We’re just going to go now. We’re going to turn around, and we’re going to start walking, and we’re not going to stop until we see a frozen yogurt shop.
Like Something From Mario
We’ve all probably gobbled a super mushroom in Nintendo’s most famous property to grow a little bigger, but we’re going to go out on a limb and say you shouldn’t try to emulate that in real life, especially with something this big. Maybe the camera is just really close to the mushroom, but this thing looks gigantic. Like it’s the size of an apple, at least, but again, that could just be where the camera is for this picture.
If there’s one thing we can be certain of, however, it’s that this mushroom isn’t going to give you an extra life. Now that we think about it, why are there so many mushrooms in the Mario games? Is it an allusion to “Alice in Wonderland”?
What Lies at the Top
First off, we imagine it has to be a little difficult getting rid of stairs. You might be able to break them down into their parts – wood or metal or whatever – and slowly dispose of them into a dumpster, but what if you don’t have the time, or the tools, or a dumpster? Then one thing you might be able to do is take the entire stairs, as one big unit, and plop it deep in the woods.
You don’t have to pay to have it hauled away, and it lets people find fun photos like this one. There are undoubtedly a bunch of scary stories somewhere online about creepy staircases that are randomly in the woods, but this one is probably fine. It’s fine. Go on and climb it. Go ahead.
Prepare to Be Cursed by a Leprechaun
If you’ve ever grabbed a metal detector and headed to the beach or the forest, you might have had this kind of image dancing in your head. A pot full of buried doubloons was left there by some clever, clever pirates... who then forgot where they had buried all that treasure. Silly pirates. Of course, you probably didn’t come across anything like this.
Maybe you found a bottle cap or something like that, but we don’t know if anyone has ever actually found a big chest or pot full of gold like the one in this picture. Then again, even if you did, you’d probably have a little fellow dressed in a green three-piece suit chasing you until you gave it all back.
